ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a given internet site. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to develop your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
